Hope Lehman

I am a pro-black biracial hip hop feminist dedicated to community empowerment and ending all forms of oppression through action, dialogue, technology and art. I was born in Sacramento, California and graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz in 2009 with a degree in Feminist Studies & Sociology. I have lived in Oakland since the fall of 2010 and am honored to be apart of the vibrant local art, entrepreneurship, and activist community. I have 6+ years experience in non-profit youth development. My expertise includes - program management, social entrepreneurship, teaching, facilitation, and leadership development.
